“You'll be very well taken care of here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2007

Margaret is a very motherly woman who wants her guests to feel at home. Her breakfasts are stellar and she's been known to hold impromptu dinner parties with her guests or share an apertif and a chat late at night. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms are done in Italian tile and some have deep soaking tubs. A few of the rooms have rather spectacular views of downtown Vancouver.

Yes, you'll need to call for a taxi or rent a car, but Margaret has on occasion driven someone to where they needed to go. She will also go out of her way to accomodate your schedule if you let her know ahead of time. I've recommended this place to a lot of folks and they all rave about it.

We stayed 3 nights in the Ocean Breeze B&B.
I had booked via the internet and the B&B's website. It looked nice and clean and all the best deals in Vancouver being already booked, I chose this one.
The first awful surprise (that's not on the website...) is that the B&B is located 1 block away from a huge factory ! Not the best when talking about "ocean breeze" and "great balcony with Vancouver view"... I had chosen to pay a little more than the usual because of the view : I was really very disappointed.
We arrived earlier than expected and the first thing the owner told us was that we should be lucky to see her because she hadn't planned on being there at that time. That's OK but that wasn't said in such a friendly way.
The 3 days went rather well (hopefully we like dogs, because the owner had a puppy that went everywhere, including the bedrooms and under the breakfast table).
The last day, we had to chek out early (around 8.30 am because of our ferry to Vancouver Island). She was VERY reluctant about preparing breakfast earlier for us (around 8 am which is not precisely dawn...). She finally agreed on it but actually arrived at 8.15 am in the morning. As nothing was ready for breakfast, we had to wait a long time... and then wait again to check out as she was talking to a friend on the phone... We finally left at 9 am !!!
Hopefully, Vancouver is a great city !

The Oceanbreeze is a cute B&B located in North Vancouver, about 15 mins by car from downtown. The B&B is well maintained and the rooms are both clean and cute (although a little small). Margaret, the host, is very warm/friendly/helpful and makes it a point to get to know her guests. I would not recommend this B&B to those who won't have access to a car while in Vancouver, as it is a little far to get to otherwise (although it is near a Sea Bus terminal, but you might not want to rely on that). We enjoyed our stay at the Oceanbreeze, and would definitely consider staying there again, but thought it was a bit expensive for what it was ($175CAD/night for a slightly small room in not the most convenient area).

The service was outstanding. The breakfast each day was unbelievable. We spent two nights and each breakfast was different and it wasn't just cereal. The meal would start with fruit and granola, then go to fresh orange juice with a ham and cheese omelet, then finish with the morning paper.
The room was great. It was very clean and very private. The location is also wonderful. Within walking distance of the water taxi that will take you over to downtown. Around the ferry terminal there are many shops. Loved North Vancouver and the Ocean Breeze!
